If you’re a busy woman like me, you know the importance of nailing down a five-minute makeup routine. It’s important for me to look put together, even if I only have a few minutes! Today I am going to share with you my go-to look when I’m in a hurry. I like to focus on looking fresh, radiant, and awake, and I think that can be accomplished in a short amount of time!
The first and probably most important thing on my list is to take care of my smile. Having a radiant white smile automatically helps you look more awake and put together.
I’ve been reaching for the all new Colgate® Optic White® RADIANT™ Toothpaste to help me get that brighter smile. What I love most about this toothpaste is that it safely whitens the inside as well as the outside of my teeth. It contains hydrogen peroxide, which is a dentist recommended whitening ingredient. I don’t have lots of time to whiten my teeth, and I love that I can do it just by brushing. It’s also safe to use daily.
After I’ve taken care of my pearly whites, I go in with a luminous primer. Since we’re going for a radiant look, this is a great base for everything.
After primer, I use a luminous CC cream. Between that and the primer, my skin will look fresh and awake!
I then quickly put a little bit of concealer underneath my eyes – it is a step I absolutely cannot skip! Even if I only have a few minutes, it makes a huge difference in making me look awake!
Next, I lightly dust over a radiant powder, and a tiny bit of bronzer to warm up my complexion.
Using a tinted brow gel helps me get my brows done quickly.
To make my eyes look more awake, I then take a champagne colored eyeshadow and pat it on the eyelid with my finger. We don’t have time to mess around with eyeshadow brushes!
I don’t know about you, but I can’t leave the house without a bit of mascara. Using a lengthening mascara definitely helps eyes look more awake.
As a final step, I go in with a flattering and neutral lipgloss. Gloss helps pull together this radiant look and is very quick to apply.
Here’s the final look! Fresh faced and radiant in five minutes!
A fresh face and a radiant white smile are all I need to feel put together on those days when I’m tired and in a hurry.
You can grab Colgate® Optic White® RADIANT™ Toothpaste at your local Kroger on the tooth care aisle. It’s a new product launch, and I know you will love adding it to your routine!
